In April, First Bus introduced a wave of changes to Leeds services due to low passenger numbers, these included rerouting the 508 service connecting Halifax to Leeds, cancelling the number 9 service connecting Horsforth to the White Rose, and splitting its 51 and 52 services which travels through Leeds city centre from Morley in the south to Moor Allerton in the north to improve punctuality.

And from Sunday (September 3), First Bus, alongside rival companies such as Arriva and Transdev, will be introducing a host of new route changes – ranging from reroutes to timing tweaks. Here’s all 28 bus timetable changes due in Leeds from this weekend…
